Each of CVMS’ five, multi-aged classrooms of 3- to 6-year-olds is guided by an educator who has both a four-year college degree as well as Montessori certification from the American Montessori Society (AMS) and the North American Montessori Center (NAMC). The Lead Directress is also aided by a Montessori-trained Directress and Assistant.
